by. the opposition leaders and i'm wondering. conventionally plotting to topple the islamist president. you're watching weekly news review on the very latest developments. five people have now died as a result of the plane crash when a passenger jet overshot the runway at one of russia's busiest airports where the wounded flight attendants died of her injuries in hospital on sunday to pull off two or four airliner crashed through a fence into the side of a major highway breaking into three parts all eight people on board were crew members of the crash happened ten kilometers from the city this is video taken by
a motorist dashboard camera which captured the moment of impact. i. for those on the highway at the time a lucky escape but an incident which clearly left them shocked the driver can be heard on the video breathing deeply as he tries to pull over following on from what you just witnessed. earlier i talked to one of the witnesses to the accident who stopped his car and got out to help the injured including the flight attendant was since died in hospital he told us about how he found her and shared some of the dramatic video he shot well we've found she was in the back of the plane in the main in the fuselage part of it but. there were four of us it was slippery and we try to take it to the road certainly highway one and not you her legs. is there was blood all over her face
there was blood dripping from the mouths in your eyes were. of course. that's was because of the jet fuel. condition she was in consciousness and she spoke to us how badly hurt was she do you think did she same thing at all. yes. that's you i've heard so she told us to go down she said but my legs hurt but both of her legs were broken. and she will i think she she did not feel for her legs. but the good words were not secure late and what were you trying to do where were you trying to take. the bullet we
tried to take yours to the high we thought there were some ambulances on the sides and we wanted to turn to ruby to the paramedics but there were none of them knew no ambulance crews that's why we were holding her and charles i was holding the legs of the other guys were holding her in her lap there was a police car. rides their butts we couldn't fix her inside. well as we mentioned the crash has now claimed the lives of five people who were on board the other three are still in critical condition now investigators are trying to fathom why the to pull off two or four careered off the runway it's a relatively new type of aircraft which had never before been involved in a deadly crash parties but in the cautionary reports from the crash site. as you can see behind my back the biggest and the only part of the plane that still lies
a very closely to the highway is now called bridge was toppling to hide it from public view as well as to protect what's left of the plane for further investigation and now the cabins of the plane as well as the black boxes have already been cleared and the investigation is in full swing so far there are three main versions of why this tragedy happened and this versions are weather conditions pilot error and possible top nickel problems with the plane as there were reports of gods of there might have been something wrong with the plane's braking system that's why it couldn't stop while being on the runway earlier at the ross abbey ation said that the crew on board of this plane was very experienced and he announced that right when first reports appeared dads are the main cause of this crash might have been pilot error meanwhile this pos injured jadzia crashed after
a second lensing attempt it's rolled out of the runway domination of the highways bearer and pretty crashed on the road and of the investigation now examines the data on the black boxes trying to find a reason why this incident happened. of course a small blessing was that there were no passengers on board the plane which contrary more than two hundred people that's amid a busy holiday season with aviation safety expert david explained why the jets was almost empty. the clue is with the fact that this is a charter airline it does a lot of charter work and therefore it had a task a chartered task to carry people out to the czech republic but it didn't have a cost to bring bring them back until probably a later date meanwhile i suspect the airline needed its aircraft back at base to do other work so i think you'll find out find that this was what in the trade is called up positioning flight it was positioning the empty aircraft back to its base
on the runways long enough the weather wasn't particularly a problem there was some very light snow at the time but you know for anybody who operates in the moscow airport at this time of the year that shouldn't be a problem. of course it does reduce the and asian on the runway the braking efficiency of the airplane but the pilots of course have to and you know it's their job to make allowances and if braking action is not very good it when an aircraft goes over the end of the runway like this it's almost always because the aircraft for some reason landed too fast which would be a case of misjudgment unless there was a technical reason and we haven't heard any invention yet or that the true again a misjudgment tissue landed too far down the runway and therefore couldn't stop by the end of it. with more pictures and i witness accounts from the scene on our website where you can also find out more about the plane itself that's at r.t.
dot com. well moving on now to some other need from nears day the adoption of a russian children by u.s. citizens will no longer be possible of the president putin signed the measure into law it's a tit for tat response to american sanctions against russian officials which it sees as human rights violators we're going to scare has more on the diplomatic spat . you have to understand that the law the so-called denton magnitsky law actually deals primarily a with imposing travel and financial strictures on the number of american officials and persons who have committed crimes against russian citizens and only only part of the law actually bans the adoption of russian children a by american citizens it has been in part inspired by the case of a russian toddler who was adopted by the american family in two thousand and nine and died in their custody several months later after his father left him in
a locked in the car in the blistering heat for nine hours the russian lawmakers feel that the american law system does not provide adequate adequate protection for the russian kids and also does not punish those responsible for the deaths of russian kids for example do you have to loose father adoptive father walked away with a fine aside from this new law russian lawmakers are also pledging to improve the lives of orphans and also improve foster care situation in russia but this new particular law is seen as a response to the so-called magnitsky act which was adopted in the united states just a couple of weeks ago. which entails a list of russian officials whom the united states believed to be involved in the case. a russian lawyer who was charged with tax evasion put in preliminary confinement and then died while in custody now sergei magnitsky family friends and several few unwise organizations believe the charges against one of
these two were trumped up and that he died in custody for all the severe beatings these two acts are seen as the latest developments in the ongoing search for tad's put a diplomatic battle which seems to be going on despite the a reset button pushed several years ago russian studies history professor steven cohen from new york and princeton university's says he's never been known to any of the russians about russian u.s. relations. there's an old russian saying we're friends are also deeds a lot of people in moscow and in washington when they passed the magnitsky act and now the ban on adoption in moscow may have thought they were just talking showing off playing grandstanding politically as we say in america but these words have consequences they have that they fuel all this new cold war atmosphere which is enveloping the relationship between our two countries it's going to affect american relations with russia regarding afghanistan regarding missile defense regarding
syria regarding iran these are very serious matters but bamma has continued the policy toward moscow begun by president clinton a democrat and continued by president bush a republican that policy is investing nato toward russia's borders building missile defense on russia's borders interfering in russia's internal politics most recently the street demonstrations this is the same policy that began twenty years ago with the soviet union. iran is rolling out the big guns in the persian gulf tehran undertakes massive maybe drills in a strategic strait of hormuz to show the world what it's got trouble comes calling as we report in a few minutes time. from our t.v. recall the money merry go round which saw big bailouts savage cuts countries on the edge that's all ahead. egypt's president
merci has made an attempt to ease political tensions in the country calling on the opposition to engage in dialogue but his offer was met with skepticism since it came shortly after the launch of an investigation into his three top opponents well chief prosecutor is citing allegations that position leaders including fries with that mohamed el baradei incited their supporters to topple mercy earlier this week it was announced the divisive new constitution was approved by over sixty percent of egyptians to stage a referendum. physician claims it is a list draft document and shrines sharia law and they only got a yes vote because of fraud. well the first contributor from britain's guardian newspaper explain to us why mercy doesn't feel secure enough to winning the referendum. think he wants to sort of deflect attention from the economy because the underlying problem plate the biggest we're facing egypt is the economic crisis one of four egyptians are without jobs poverty is on the rise he just ended
subsidies on fuel which means that the prices of gas and electricity are going to rocket and so this is a kind of a sort of smokescreen for him and he what he i think each breaking to get the opposition tied up in these are the legal challenges to it to sort of stop the whole focusing on opposing him on the issues where he's he's very weak and i think also he be worried that you know a sizable minority thirty six over thirty six percent of people voted against the constitution and the fact seems to be that that he said hope is on the way. and i think that obviously you know i think we can see more protests in the new year or world news to come from r.t. in moscow stay with us here. on. a sacred place rising out of the waters of the lake the lawn ministry is home to one hundred fifty orthodox monks mostly younger than thirty five and they've

watching artie's weekly news from gun sales in the u.s. have rocketed after president obama pledged to ban certain types of automatic weapons in the wake of the sandy hook massacre artie's college education now in a panic buying public getting up and while they still can't. about two weeks ago actually on this particular wall here. we are is four rows down four rows across. with everything going on in politics right now with the possible ban and everything everyone is flooding in. purchasing right away gun stores all across the u.s. are reporting record sales just two weeks after the tragic shooting at the elementary school in newtown americans are scrambling to buy the same type of weapon that adam lanza used in the connecticut shooting plus high capacity magazines and a lot of them panic buying trigger it out of fear that the white house is out to
ban the weapons but this time the words need to lead to action no a r fifteen for this customer all sold out at the store while prices on line have gone through the rules have been going for a thousand and fifty eight hundred eight hundred dollars to twenty five hundred three thousand dollars even in some cases it's just the most amazing gun buying spree i've ever seen so many gun retailers now quite cynically refer to thieve ministrations ben talk as the obama gun stimulus that's how good it's been for their business so how do you go from a president with a tough gun control agenda to someone gun dealers call the greatest gun salesman in america manufacturers of semi-automatic rifles report that their market has grown thirty percent over the last four years states like north carolina iowa you have seen a one hundred percent increase in gun sales over the same period in the wake of the tragedy in newtown one of the country's biggest ammunition suppliers said they sold
more than three years worth of magazines in just three days although president obama himself has so far failed to act on his pledge to ban assault weapons his words have certainly provoked action just not the type he may have wanted for someone they say is against. doing a great job for us. maybe there should be a third term in order to sell even more weapons many dealers hype up gone apocalypse an aerial to the bank and then the moment. you leave the stock not only you started. but many of them don't actually see any drastic changes happening anytime soon after all any significant gun control measures and up in the past ultimately clashed with the second amendment of the constitution and were subsequently scrapped. tilley were junior tennis chicken
well for some american communities gun violence is part of everyday life as we'll see in about ten minutes from now it's often down to the colors being worn which decide who becomes a victim. the end of the year in iran is being marked by massive naval drills held in the strait of hormuz one of the world's busiest oil shipping routes was ship submarines and jet fighters are taking part with the aim of proving tehran is well equipped to defend its maritime borders but maneuvers come as the west builds up pressure over iran's nuclear program falling on sanctions against the country tehran warned a few months ago that it could block the strait its navy commanders say that's not on the agenda now the first side mohammad marandi from tehran university explained why the iranians don't think there's a danger of a military confrontation in the near future. in the sense that western countries are brutal and civilized enough to carry out an attack i think that that's clear to
run into the fact that western countries are imposing sanctions and cargo on it on iran they're trying to prevent iran from even importing and exporting medicine and food stuff by blocking the central bank and there are shortages of some medicines right now in iran and people have died so the fact that western countries are willing to kill ordinary people and to make people suffer i think makes it clear that the idea of carrying out an attack on iran is something that they would contemplate if they could but i think on the other hand the iranians believe that western countries are much weaker today than they ever were before the defeat in iraq and afghanistan the setbacks in. that israel had in lebanon in gaza make as well the economic crisis in europe in north america make it highly unlikely but the iranians have prepared themselves and i think that it has been a to turn to war so the i think in general the iranians feel that
a military assault on iran aggression would be highly unlikely. well look at today's international news now. gunfire. antigovernment protests near the western iraqi city of ramadi as if two people wounded is still the bodyguards of a sunni official fired the shots have been more than a week of rallies which have seen sunni muslim protest against what they see a second class treatment from the shia led government. the body of the indian student who was a gang raped on a bus has been cremated in new delhi earlier hundreds held peaceful candlelit vigil in the capital of the twenty three year old died from their injuries singapore hospital. days of riots with protesters demanding more protection from him in the country six suspects are currently being held over the assault who face the death penalty if convicted. egypt has allowed a shipment of construction materials to enter gaza from its territory is the first
easing of restrictions since two thousand and seven since militant group came to power in gaza egypt had been following israel's import blockade the palestinian official say israel has also promising that all the building will be allowed into gaza seventy percent of the all claims commercial needs are currently routed through israel. with a just a couple of days before america plunges off the fiscal cliff there is still no deal in sight between the firmly entrenched republicans and democrats millions of americans stand to see their taxes go up dramatically on new year's day but the sticking point holding up negotiations are the rates for the rich republicans are rejecting any deal that would see those taxes rise democrats insist the wealthy could pay a little more vestment advisor patrick young says the u.s. is heading towards further recession if it can curb its spending. i'm really
worried going into twenty thirteen i mean ultimately the great thing is that humankind will survive we will all remain the same people but the problem we have this first of all america seems to be heading suicidally towards this thing the fiscal cliff the possibility that it may enter another leg or recession or possibly even depression as a result of legislators inability to current their spending like footballers' wives and then on the other side of the atlantic we also have this. the european union is getting to the point where it seems to think its soldiers problems polish solving your problems means that twenty five percent of the workforce of several countries are out of work fifty plus percent of the youth of say somewhere like spain are out of work that really frightens me or so the a use new year will see more of the same old austerity in several countries frustration has turned to violence on a few occasions during twenty twelve citizens became increasingly angry at paying the price for the blunders of their governments and banks there's how artie's news
teams remember europe's year of money misery. it came to the point where if you walked into the studio you knew there was going to be a story about europe and austerity and protests and riots whether it would be spain or greece or even the u.k. and these were real people in real situations in very scary situations and our correspondents were out there in the midst of it all. so we actually we all sat so still it's over some type of square and i just see the come around behind the camera everybody else around me putting just months on like he had a few for moscow during the single life before i can say anything you get that
horrible taste in your mouth and of course it's the tear gas that's become so synonymous with these demonstrations in greece along with the firing of molotov cocktails and clashes with the police the producers like to see their correspondents in the middle of a crowd which is great but then the crowd shouting to correspondents try to speak out everyone's very loud you can't hear anything that makes for good television. it's an incredible event covering it is pretty exciting you've got political elements you use the elements and you on the court force you've got the tragic human stories of people who are driven to desperation and pushed onto the streets to protest what they see is their livelihoods just the way over to iraq this most of. the people do think it's about spain's crippling unemployment figures especially amongst the young about the cost of the state has said this is and then you really get a sense of just how angry and how desperate the for the day we get the full of love that's doing to the country and so you just it's not in the middle of one of these big protest movements when the clashes break out.
